If you are going for a summer holiday, make sure to tick off these 5 must-haves from your checklist. They are the top things you can’t forget to pack!

Creating a checklist before your trip is the best way to ensure you haven’t forgotten something. Even if you don’t plan to pack many clothes, shoes, toiletries, and other necessities, it’s a good idea to double-check before you go on vacation. Certainly, every holiday and every destination needs different clothes.

So there are some things you should always have during your summer vacation. Of course, there are some essential things that everyone should not forget while traveling. For example, if you forget your passport and ID card, you probably have nowhere to go. Or at least not abroad. But instead of talking about these summer vacation essentials, let’s take a look at the top five must-haves to remember.

Hats and sunglasses

Needless to say, if you spend hours in the sun, you need to bring stylish glasses and a hat. Choose the perfect sunglasses and hat for your vacation to protect you from the scorching sun. So pack trendy and easy-to-pack sunglasses and hats that look great in the warm sunlight.


It might sound a bit silly, but sunscreen should be at the top of your list when traveling. The temperatures in summer can get really high, so if you are planning a holiday to Greece, make sure to bring sunscreen for protection. After all, you will surely sunbathe, swim, or even go on a cruise, so it is essential to keep yourself protected from the sun.

A spare swimsuit

When going to the beach or relaxing by the pool, there is a variety of swimwear suitable for different occasions. Try packing a sun shirt to protect your skin from sunburn. However, choose something that feels comfortable to help you get the most out of your vacation. Also, you will definitely spend hours and days on the beach, so it is advisable to bring a spare swimsuit.

Summer read

Bringing a good book or magazine will give you a completely relaxing time while you enjoy your vacation. Reading makes time go even and gives you valuable time for rejuvenation. Furthermore, there is nothing better than reading while enjoying the beautiful waters of Greece’s stunning beaches. It helps you reconnect with nature and your inner child.

Copies of documents

Be sure to pack a copy of the first page of your passport, visa, and credit card before traveling. You can also email a copy to yourself in an emergency. Always keep your travel documents in your room safe or hotel safe.
